World class defender offered to the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool by Barcelona!
Reports have claimed that long-term Chelsea and Liverpool target Samuel Umtiti has been offered to the Premier League by Barcelona.
It is no secret that Barcelona are one of the greatest teams in world football right now and are only a handful of sides that are able to pay massive wages to superstars like Lionel Messi, Gerard Pique and Antoine Griezmann.
However, it is no secret that Barcelona are a club that are in debt and they will be looking to offload a number of players in the summer transfer window in order to generate some funds in order to sign their own transfer targets.
And according to reports on the Sky Sports website, they no longer wish to keep hold of Umtiti and have offered him to the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, United, Tottenham and Chelsea for a bargain price of just £20 million.
umtiti is rated very highly across Europe and has been linked with a move to the Premier League on many occasions, but he has tried to prove that he has the ability to be a Barcelona player, without really being given a real shot at that chance.
If the reports is true and Barcelona are being forced to sell some players this transfer window, or the next, then there are a few players that Chelsea or Liverpool should try and acquire that would make a serious statement to the rest of the Premier League.
Umtiti may not be playing his best football at Barcelona, but at the right club, he could be a massive signing and if any of the clubs linked do decide to pay £20 million to get a deal done, he would be well worth the money.
